Drama at Bryanston has an excellent reputation and with 15-20 productions a year pupils have plenty of opportunities to perform, design and direct. There is a strong focus on pupil-directed drama, encouraging independence, creativity and initiative. Pupils interested in the technical side can join the stage crew to learn how to handle the equipment and design, light and costume a production, while others help with front of house, marketing and box office.
There is a wide range of performance spaces across the School, including Coade Hall, a purpose-built theatre with a sophisticated system of stage lighting and sound, and a large Greek theatre that provides a beautiful setting for outdoor productions in the summer.
Professional touring companies and outside groups regularly visit Bryanston, and pupils attend productions at other theatres. Workshops, lectures and master classes add breadth to the dramatic experiences. You can find details of forthcoming events here.
